Mannequin frame section 1

Part of the framing from a diorama which would have showed mannequins from a scene in a play, and which would have part of the displays within a temple. LOCATION McCrossin’s Mill Museum, Uralla Mannequin frame section 1 – at McCrossin’s Mill (IMG_5999, 12.4.21) A well-preserved example of a diorama at Launceston’s Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery (QVMAG), an image of which is shown below, sheds further light on this object. The QVMAG diorama has a frame surround which is a very close match for several fragments held in at McCrossin’s Mill Museum: Mannequin frame section 1, Mannequin frame section 2, Mannequin frame section 3 and Mannequin frame section 4).
